Comment from Adam Bowers:

An old thread but a good topic. Here’s a prezi from a talk I gave on parenting and internet security. For ultimate security and control, I recommend Mobile Fence on Android. But I suggest four layers of security. Your options are more limited on iOS but, as long as your kid isn’t amazing with computers, you’ll be aIright. 

Parents must remember that we are raising future adults so while some restrictions are necessary. They will reach a point when they have none! That’s why we must focus on character and relationships even more than filtering and gradually remove restrictions as kids grow older and demonstrate trustworthiness.

Thanks Ben. I will definitely speed test it first. Since they are both running in RAID5 I’ll probably go with a RAID0 on the group so hopefully that won’t affect speed too much.
